Dual 4" Surround Loudspeaker
RS-42
Delivering detailed and lifelike performances, the
Reference Series RS-42 brings a new dimension
of reality and convenience to the world of
surround sound.
Adopting a completely new cabinet and driver
layout that is similar to the Klipsch THX® Ultra2
KS-525-THX surround speaker, the RS-42
establishes greater output, improved coverage and
increased power handling to further extend
Klipsch’s best-in-class surround sound
performance.
Exclusive Tractrix ® Horns have always been the
key component of the Reference Series. In the
RS-42, this technology has been refined to include
improved throat geometry for a more genuine,
lifelike sound. Behind the speaker’s dual horns lie
1-inch titanium tweeters with powerful
neodymium magnet motor structures to provide a
unique combination of precision, clarity and
effortless dynamics.
The RS-42 employs dual 4-inch woofers for a solid
bass foundation. These Cerametallic™ woofers
with inverted copper dust caps exhibit a very high
stiffness-to-mass ratio and superb damping
characteristics.
Klipsch Wide Dispersion Surround Technology™
(WDST) provides crystal-clear sonic detail even
in listening areas with less than ideal configurations.
The Tractrix Horns deliver a 90-degree wide by
60-degree high dispersion pattern. By aligning two
horns at 90-degrees with respect to each other,
WDST smoothly covers a 180-degree horizontal
arc. In other words, the surround sound is pointed
at you no matter where you are seated.
• High-performance surround speaker
• WDST™ design for maximum coverage and ease of placement
• Clean, compact shape for minimal room intrusion

While increased baffle ribbing around the horn
mouth dramatically improves acoustics across the
sonic range, the crossover utilizes Klipsch custom
internal wiring and the finest components to
provide signal purity and perfect driver integration.
Available in a matte black vinyl finish, the RS-42
also features side-firing ports to eliminate
turbulence noise and back-panel keyholes and 1/4"
threaded inserts to simplify installation. A lowdiffraction, magnetically attached grille further
accentuates the elegance of this speaker.
